The optional subject "Landscape architecture" resumes the basic disciplines dealing with the functional, organizational and spatial relationships at the level of the city and its parts. In classes and tutorials the students get acquainted with the past and present of landscape and garden art, with the interpretation of this discipline in its relation to urban design and architecture.
Of great importance for the practice of an architect and urban designer are the properties of the plant material and its use in a landscape design. Emphasis is also put on the principles and rules of planning, making and maintaining green spaces. In classes and tutorials students get acquainted with the best examples of implemented garden architecture, reconstructed gardens and parks and newly established green areas.
